Peugeot will be presenting their fully autonomous electric concept car at the 2018 Paris Motor Show happening in early October, joining a growing list of automakers who are coming out with their own vision for connected mobility of the future.

Dubbed as the Peugeot e-Legend Concept, the compact sedan styled car can operate as a fully autonomous car or with a driver behind the wheel depending on your choice. Each of the operations has two further driving modes:

  • Soft – fully autonomous drive that focuses on maximum comfort by minimising information displayed on the digital screens
  • Sharp – fully autonomous drive with maximum onboard connectivity displayed on the screens
  • Legend – manual driving that recreates the brand’s iconic 504 coupe’s cabin
  • Boost – manual driving that draws the full dynamic potential of the car

Head of Peugeot Strategy, Aude Brille said: “With PEUGEOT e-LEGEND CONCEPT, for us it’s about intensifying and refining the experience of 100% autonomy, electric and connectivity.  The Responsive i- Cockpit® is enhanced to offer its guests immersive driving specifically customised for each of the four driving modes available.”

The e-Legend concept is powered by a full electric powertrain juiced by 100 kWh battery pack, giving the car 340 kW (462 hp) and 800 Nm of torque. Power is transferred to all four-wheels and century sprint is completed in under 4 seconds while top speed is rated at 220 km/h.

Peugeot claims that the e-Legend will have a real-world driving range of 600 km and thanks to its fast charging capability, the battery pack can give 500 km of driving range within 25 minutes of charging.
